I LOVE it! What a beautiful picture and a beautiful take on the challenge. I love the flag in the background, it really adds to it. My only CC would be to maybe go with a higher aperature so all the badges are in focus. Really though, I love it!

I actually had a picture that did have all of it in focus, but I ended up liking this one more, personally, because it focused in on the U.S. symbol. I was hoping it would kind of show that that was the reason why he was serving. You know, that it's not about the metals and ribbons, it's about the country we live in. The country he's serving. :)

Nice job. The subject really does emit a lot of emotion.

Teri said...

Love it. I get very emotional when ever I see anyone in uniform. Makes me very proud of my country. Nice job!

What a beautiful tribute. Great photo, and thanks. I think everyone must know or be related to someone who is serving or has served in the military, so thank you for a beautiful tribute to them.

This is beautiful! I kinda wondered what it would look like with the badges in focus but I like what you said about the US being the focus. And I think the flag adds a really nice touch. I just love it!

I had the same thought as Brittney, but I can see now what you mean--and I like your take on it! LOVE the flag in the background! TOTALLY adds to it! GREAT JOB NICIA! Soooo happy you are joining in on the blog!

Wonderful picture AND idea! I love the setup. I go a little overboard with shallow depth of field on my own pictures, so I like the focus on this one. :)

Very emotional picture to me as well as I lost my little brother who was a Marine. Thanks to your husband for his service and dedication. Great shot, great take, great emotion. So glad you joined!!

Melinda said...

What a neat shot! Like everyone else, I LOVE the flag. I love colors and where you put your focus. Way to go being a military wife...as a military brat, I hear ya!

Awe that is what I feel when I saw this. Repect and awe! One of the best feelings from a picture I have had on here. Guess it is because of my sister in the military and my love for the country.

I love how it focus. To me it focuses on US pin and the rest is a bit out of focus but enough to show nicely! This is just fantastic!

Nicia said...

Thank you Blake, and everyone else who commented. It means a lot.
